The Bishop of Wakefield has issued a personal invitation to all the parishes and church communities across the Wakefield Episcopal Area to join him for a special Pentecost picnic and worship event.
Come and See on Sunday May 15 in Wakefield is to celebrate the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and is the culmination of a series of social and worship events at parish level designed to engage with the wider local community. These have included pancake parties, Messy Church, a race night, Grill the Bishop and a special event for Baptism families.
And on Sunday May 15, everyone is invited to meet at the Cathedral Academy on Thornes Road at 12.30pm on Sunday - bring their own picnic lunch to eat - before they process up through the city to the Cathedral for worship and drama from 2.30pm.
At the Cathedral school there will be circus entertainment as well as circus skills to try your hand at, and an opportunity to make prayer ribbons to carry on the procession.
All the bishop asks, is that you wear something red!
If you are only able to attend the Service at 2.30pm, you are very welcome to attend this part of the event.
Please note that all children must be accompanied by and adult/ carer at all times.
